About Us

“The best kind of help to others, whenever possible, is indirect, and consists in such modifications of the conditions of life, of the general level of subsistence, as enables them independently to help themselves.”

John Dewey

Jaffna Social Action Center is a Sri Lankan non-governmental organisation providing services throughout the Jaffna Peninsula and the Northern Province with projects currently active in Jaffna, Kilinochchi, Mannar and Mullaitivu districts.

Founded in 2003, We are a special protection NGO that works with the most vulnerable members of society: former IDPs (returnees), women headed families and children in areas of poverty.

We implement projects that will reduce the impact of disaster and trauma, and promote durable development. In particular we are working on the protection of children and women.
